I just acquired the first season of CHiPs on DVD. I got my set at Best Buy in Chattanooga TN. And over there, Best Buy had a special offer. You get a free pair of CHiPs style sunglasses that came with the set.
I watched CHiPs a alot when I was growing up, but believe it or not, I never saw the pilot episode until I bought the DVD. Now that I've watched a few episodes, I now want to recollect the CHiPs figures I had as a kid. I currently have Ponch and Jon with everything except gunholsters and the emblems since the glue on them is now worthless. All I need to do is find some gunholsters and some repro emblems (if they exist) and hopefully some powerful super glue to hold them altogether.
With this DVD set, I'd forgotten just how much fun season one was to watch. I look forward to the following seasons but the last one. The show sucked when Larry Wilcox left and I didn't care much about Bobby and Bruce, the Nelson Brothers, Ponch's new partners.
Anyway, I've had CHiPs on my mind today. Just thought I'd mention the free sunglasses with the set at Best Buy.
